Compact Disc

The compact disc has proved hugely popular over the years due to its highly portable nature. Consequently, there exists a great deal of content in this format that would benefit from the protection afforded by digitisation. Converting compact disc to digital is a prudent step, protecting your material from permanent loss or damage and making it quickly accessible.

Thankfully, TownsWeb Archiving’s CD to digital service uses experienced technicians who are experts in restoring and converting all your compact discs to digital, delivering a transferred copy of data onto a secure format.

TownsWeb Archiving also offers an automatic audio transcription service, ideal for CD’s which contain oral histories. These files can be turned into typed text to make them searchable by keywords.

Digitisation Frequently Asked Questions

The content held on the compact disks will determine the formats that TownsWeb Archiving can provide. In most cases our CD digitisation is for the transfer of files (any formats) onto a more stable long term storage device. This will assist in the migration of CDs into a platform or preservation system in a fast, secure method, from hard drives, LTO or other easily readable hardware.

All content is captured by our highly trained digitisation technicians, before undergoing a formal quality assurance checking procedure. The final step in the process is the delivery of your electronic files by hard drive.
